Do you enjoy making dope videos? Then this could be the place for you. Independent Journal Review (IJR) is building a world-class news team that will define a new era of social publishing. We want creative, social-first content creators to join the insanity!
IJR is one of the largest social publishers in the world & has been named ‘Best in Politics’ by Digiday & called ‘the most viral newsroom of 2016’ by MSNBC. We are obsessed with the intersection of news, politics & the internet & don’t like telling stories the same way everyone else does. We are investing heavily in a cutting edge creative team & viral politics newsroom. This model is growing, fast. The IJR team has created some of the most shareable, groundbreaking viral political content of 2016 & we look to build on that success with a driven, creative, digital team member.
Did we mention we had our own Presidential Debate?

A self-motivated team player. We're seeking someone who is highly motivated, and interested in working in a fast-paced, growing team. Additionally, we're looking for someone with a strong work ethic.
A desire to create something new. If it’s been done, we’re not really interested. The political world has never been more diverse and accessible.

Culture. We want to invest in it. Creativity is best nurtured in a relaxed, collaborative environment with lots of beef jerky, espresso, and blazing fast wifi. We can provide that. Feel free to wear a snuggie to the office. Just produce and be a team-player.
